“As the daughter of an orthopaedic surgeon, I grew up with medicine. Being a keen skier and hockey player I began my physio career pursuing Sports Physio. Having the opportunity to travel the world in my early career, I fostered a love of moguls and freestyle skiing. I was fortunate to tour with the Australian Freestyle Ski team and covered the World Cup in the USA. At this time I completed further study in Exercise and Sports Science, Functional Anatomy, and Biomechanics.
Working for many prominent physios I learned a lot, and I am very grateful to them. I developed a love for ‘hands-on ‘ physio, releasing tight muscles and fascia, and really feeling what was going on in a person’s tissues. Also for correcting posture, poor walking/running habits, and lower limb pain and injury, particularly feet. Having a curious and creative mind I love to add complementary therapies to Physio, such as aspects of osteopathy, craniosacral therapy, and therapeutic yoga.
I have had my share of injury and heartbreak. In my early 20’s I had a knee reconstruction, recovered from that to return to competitive skiing, and about 6 years later fractured my knee. My life, with a love for fast sports, changed. I could no longer run or ski like I wanted to. I started doing Hatha yoga and had an Iyengar teacher for 2 years. I traveled to India 3 times for courses.
Yoga has taught me so much, physically and philosophically. I now listen to my body and its needs. My knees have given me little trouble since doing Yoga regularly. Yoga has enabled me to return to skiing, bushwalk and live a normal pain-free life. It has given me an extra 15 years of use of my knees without further surgery. I can teach you how to listen to your body and create a healing environment to relieve pain and treat injury or restrictions.
